    Once Again Trying to Lose Quetiapine Weight

    So I am making another stab at losing weight, but I am doing it differently this time. I am big enough that if I lose weight quickly I will have problems with excess skin, and skin removal surgery is not covered in Canada. So I am aiming to lose the weight I want to lose over 5 years rather...

    No Apetite

    Last few weeks I have just been eating because I know I should, but I have no appetite. I think it's stress, and there is no sign of it letting up. I've got my apartment all cleaned up, and now there is something at work that is completely beyond my control and even beyond my boss's control...

    Shopping, coffee, sugar and other treats

    I am curious whether others are doing the same. I treat myself all of the time. I reward myself for getting through half an hour by having a coffee pod or a treat of some kind. I spend quite a lot of time browsing sites looking for things I can buy to make me or my home look nicer. It is as...

    I feel so much shame for my depression. It just doesn't make sense why I get sad because a lot of things in my life are great. I have a decent job and people who love me. I know I should be happy and greatful. But I don't understand why anyone would like me? I have a shitty personality and bad...

    seroquel and no emotions

    I feel like conducting an experiment

    This morning I forgot to take my meds and I have felt fantastic all day. So I skipped my pm dose as well. I want to see if I feel better tomorrow. If I start feeling bad I will simply take my meds. I would hate to lose this feeling so for now I'm gonna stay off of all but my ADs and sleeping pills.
